Colin Beard and Girl

An emotive exhibition of photographs tracing the very footsteps of Saint Francis of Assisi opens on June 2 at the KaRi Gallery, Kenilworth.

Regarded as one of Australia’s foremost creative photographers, Colin Beard is showing rarely seen images from his major project “In the Footsteps of Saint Francis” resulting from a memorable year spent in Assisi, Italy.

A review from the Sydney Morning Herald describes the photographer as “a master of light” acknowledging his superb craftsmanship and creative energy.

In conversation with Mr Beard, it's easy to appreciate that his skills have stemmed from a great desire to capture people’s uniqueness, and the profound depth of energy imbued in the landscapes where people have traditionally lived, worked and honoured their particular gods.

The spirituality in this photographer's work leaps from the walls in the key images shown from the collection “In the Footsteps of Saint Francis”.

Colin has produced several important photographic books with text by internationally respected author, James Cowan. Since 1965, his photography career has included major works on the Australian outback, the Snowy River, peoples of the Western Desert, rock 'n roll icons from around the world, fashion photography, a multitude of commissions for magazines such as Australian Geographic, and his beloved Yorkshire Dales where he was born which is a project yet to be shown.

He has held solo exhibitions throughout the world and has received numerous international awards for his work, including a Gold Medal in New York for his Qantas sales brochures photography.

One of his outback images is now featured in the new Australian Passport.

Colin Beard’s photography embraces what he considers the four essential virtues of a good artist - good craftsmanship, good aesthetics, good message and good spirit.

You can find out more about his philosophy at a three-hour workshop “Photography for Artists” on June 15 in Kenilworth. The emphasis of the workshop will be to introduce students to techniques of photography that can be useful to visual artists of different persuasions.

The exhibition opens at 11am on Sunday, June 2, with the workshop to be held on Saturday June 15.
Cost for the workshop is $40 for KaRi members, $60 for non-members. To book for the workshop and for all inquiries, contact Vit Martinek of the KaRi Gallery on 5488 6376.
